COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian wheat beer brewed with a touch of rye and a massive addition (over 1,000 lbs. per 40-barrel batch) of plump, ripe blackberries grown by Agriberry in Hanover County, Hardywood Virginia Blackberry offers an assertive fruit character while remaining extremely refreshing. Ruby hued with the bright aroma of fresh bramble berries, this beer’s pleasantly gentle body leads to a rather dry, rounded fruit finish, making it irresistible on a hot summer day.

Tap @thecanalhouse . Aroma very fruits. Pors murky peach with white trim. Taste is medium sweet and lightly sour, a lasting fruit finish. Palate is light, slick feel, soft carbonation, and overall refreshing as a wheat beer should be, even when it's been drowned in brambles.

From tap at Craft & Draft, Amsterdam. Aroma is fruit yoghurt with slightly tart and sweetish red berries, syrupy notes, soft wheaty malt. Sweeter than I expected, wish it would be more tart, nice berry aroma. Body is medium. Decent but very sweet.

NikkTwist (3307) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2017 Draft at Bru Craft. Cloudy orange amber with off-white foam. Full, but the fruit flavors are muffled by the wheat. Not overly sweet. Apricot. Oranges. The blackberries are not as pronounced as expected (or hoped for). Mostly dry finish. Disappointed.

Darwenus (1159) - Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Hardywood bills this as a summer beer, but I think I think that anyone who enjoys it would enjoy it year round. It pours light copper color with a little bit of foam. The aroma is slightly tart and sweet, the blackberries are there, but Belgian ale qualities, like bananas and squash, are also a presence. The flavor is where the blackberries really move forward, all over the front of the tongue and the finish. But the Belgian esters and mild malt aren’t entirely suffocated. This isn’t a style I seek out, but it is pretty good.
